. happening now, violent protests spreading across the muslim world. more u.s. diplomatic posts are undersiege right now after the killing of the united states ambassador in libya. so how dangerous is it now for americans abroad? also, as the u.s. moves to hunt down the killers, libyan authorities make at least one arrest. but was it a mob attack or something much more ominous? >>> and mitt romney's taking heat even from some republicans for his harsh criticism of president obama's foreign policy. is he ready to dial back or double down again? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> u.s. warships are moving toward libya today as president obama vows that no act of terror will go unpunished. his words. but in the grim aftermath of the u.s. consulate attack in libya which left the u.s. ambassador and three other americans dead, there are still serious questions as to which group was responsible. meantime, violent protests sparked by an anti-islamic film spreading across the muslim world today. in cairo, crowds have again gathered outside the u.s. embassy right now. they've been thr
's still time. and i say, wait for what? wait until when? >> reporter: israel wants the u.s. to commit to a so-called redline with iran. if iran steps over it, they face military action against their nuclear sites. >> those international community who refuse to put redlines before iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before israel. >> reporter: israel wants u.s. support because at some point its own air force won't be able to hit iran's nuclear sites in increasingly hardens underground bunkers. with two months to election day, the u.s. administration isn't anxious to get specific. >> the american people know that the president has said unequivocally he will not allow iran to obtain a nuclear weapon. i'm not going to get into how you unpack exactly what, who, how, when. >> reporter: but not setting a line can also be risky while negotiations go on. >> on the other side of this is if you don't set very clear limits to iran's behavior, you can go on indefinitely. >> reporter: during his recent trip to israel, defense secretary leon panetta was very aware iran has moved ahead
angeles where romney spoke to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. jim, today it looks like romney is reaching out to latino voters. >> reporter: that's right, joe. he's doing just that. but he's also according to his campaign unveiling some of the details of his economic plan. just as voters are starting to pay attention to this election. but there are new distractions out there. namely a campaign blame game that does not go over well 50 days before an election. after a week of gop handwringing over his response to violence in the middle east, mitt romney is rebooting his message, returning to the issue that has driven his campaign from the beginning. the economy. >> it's time for a president who's committed to cutting spending and balancing the budget. and i know how to do that. we balanced the bajt budget in my company and in the olympics. >> reporter: in a speech to the hispanic chamber of commerce, he offered remedies to the deficit he rarely talks about. the retooled approach is backed up with plain language in new ads. >> got to balance the budget. you've got to cut the defi
at the obama administration's evolving attempts to explain who's responsible for the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. is the confusion becoming a political liability? and mitt romney says he has a little secret. you're going to hear him predict he'll win a state most experts think is safely in president obama's column. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 39 days until the presidential election. in about 20 minutes the president begins a series of fundraisers right here in washington. those are the only public events on his calendar today. yet this is the same day the president didn't have time for a face-to-face meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's in new york. instead they spoke by phone. here's cnn's white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: wolf, the white house always stresses that the president and prime minister netanyahu are in touch frequently. they downplay any daylight between the two leaders. but they didn't meet face-to-face this week. and so one phone call is getting a lot of attention. p
from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white house downplays any friction between the two leaders and brushes aside criticism that there was no face-to-face meeting. >> the president has met with and spent time on the phone with prime minister netanyahu more than with any leader since he took office. and that is reflective of the importance of and the closeness of the relationship between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran
moving to the u.s. from mexico as a child. >> they came back to the united states and my dad had to get financial help, the government helped his family to be able to get on their feet again. by the way, that's the way america works. we help people, we get them on their feet. and then they build a brighter future. >> reporter: but the romney campaign is doing more than cleaning up that video leaked to "mother jones" magazine considering what the gop nominee said on the similarities between the president's health care law and his own. >> now he says i'm the grandfather of obama care. i don't think he meant that as a compliment but i'll take it. >> reporter: noting what romney said about the past in the law. >> i will repeal obama care and i'll kill it dead on its first day. >> reporter: one of romney's top surrogates, louisiana governor bobby jindal hopped on a conference call with reporters to sayhe candidate is not trying to have it both ways. >> governor romney's made it very clear, one of his very first actions will be to repeal and replace this bad law. >> reporter: after a rocky co

appearances, highlighting his proposals to try to revive the u.s. economy. however, many republica are grumbling that romney's campaign itself is in dire need of a revival, especially after a secretly recorded complaints that the 47% of voters who support the president are dependent on the government. >> when you express an attitude that half the country considers itselves victims, that somehow they want to be dependent on government, my thinking is, maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> this is a campaign about the 100%. i've demonstrated my capacity to help the 100%. >> after listening to a week's worth of criticism of her husband, especially from other republicans, romney's wife, ann, has had enough. >> stop it. this is hard. you want to try it? get in the ring. it is time for all americans to realize how significant this election is and how lucky we have to have someone with mitt's qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country. >> joining us now, cnn's chief political analyst, gloria borger, and our senior political analys

decades of playing defense, the democrats now claim they're the party of u.s. national security. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> normally a drop in the nation's unemployment rate would be considered good news, but not today. the government's brand new report shows employers added only 96,000 jobs last month. that's far fewer than expected or needed. and even though the unemployment rate dropped to 8.1% from july's 8.3%, it really isn't a good sign. our chief business correspondent ali velshi here to explain why. explain why if it goes down from 8.3% to 8.1%? >> good question, wolf. the number of jobs created or lost and the unemployment rate. they are not connected. they are two different surveys. the way you take a poll, the government calls and conducts two different surveys. one gives you the jobs created. one gives you the unemployment rate. the problem with the unemployment rate is that it's a percentage of the number of people who are either working or looking for work. not a percentage of everybody able to work. and what we found out is that in august 368,000

giving tax breaks to companies that invest in the u.s. >> i assume the president is spending a lot of his time these days gettinged ready for that debate wednesday night. >> certainly in the big mush is the goin to be as he heads to nevada here in the next couple of days and will be preparing as you know his partner senator john kerry who will be filling the shoes in these mock proposals. the campaign doesn't want to talk a whole lot about the preparation. they don't really want a lot of process stories. and they really want to emphasize the fact that mitt romney has been spending time preparing as they try to set expectations very high for president obama's opponent. >> thank you. >>> and we're counting down to the first debate once again, this coming wednesday. our complete coverage begins at 7 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. let's dig a little deeper right now with ron bron steen, the editorial director of the national journal. if you're looking at all the demographics right now, where are the major differences between these two candidates? >> what you're seeing to a surprising extent
literally draws a red line in a dramatic fashion on iran's nuclear program. but will the u.s. do the same? the presidential candidates make simultaneous stops in the same state and even target the same set of voters. plus, the obama campaign combines mitt romney's words with some potentially devastating pictures. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> as of today we're just 40 days away until the presidential election. and for the second day in a row both mitt romney and president obama have been campaigning in the same battleground state. this time it's virginia where both men targeted the same group of voters. let's walk over to cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta who's been out on the campaign trail watching what's going on. another dramatic day. virginia, virginia, virginia. pretty important place. >> that's right. a rare visit to washington for me. but it's good to be home, wolf. all politics is local. so it was no surprise to hear both candidates hit on national security themes today in their speeches in virginia. but the state is much bigger than that.
sags. do some conservatives want a debate about government benef s benefits? does the country need a debate about government benefits at this time? sure. but when you cast these sweeping generalizations -- >> that's why he says the tax messages would not hurt. why would a lower tax message resonate. >> the tax question is an issue too. i hope to ask some conservatives today. here you have a republican candidate telling people that there is a certain number of people that don't pay taxes when republicans sort of aspire to lower taxes generally. so you kind of wonder exactly whether that really appeals to conservatives as well. >> right. it gives the democrats an opening to say a man who shelters his income in the cayman islands, i've heard that more than once today, how can he talk about tax rates. what gives him the moral authority to do that. >> go ahead. >> more broadly the timing. timing is everything in politics. the democrats had a good convention. governor romney had some missteps last week. look at a new virginia poll today, six-point race there. the debates will matter. wit

election. instead of trying to explain away his secretly videotaped complaint that the 47% of u.s. voters who support president obama are dependent on government, romney's trying to turn the controversy to his political advantage. our national political correspondent jim acosta is covering romney's latest stop in atlanta. >> reporter: wolf, mitt romney is now owning his message that too many americans are dependent on the government. he's trying to parlay a gift he received from the drudge rept into a new counteroffensive. mitt romney is not running from what he said in those hidden camera videos. he's embracing it. >> this is how america works. it does not work by a government saying become dependent on government. >> reporter: the gop nominee is now weaving his controversial riff on government dependency into his campaign speeches like the one he gave at this fundraiser in atlanta. >> 47% people will vote for president obama no matter what. they depend on government very much. >> reporter: less than two days after explaining this leak to mother jones, he published an op-ed in usa today
, does that mean he will actually move the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to the capital jerusalem? obviously very, very sensitive subject. i want everybody to standby. we're watching what's going on here at the democratic convention in charlotte. also, a dramatic announcement today. they've changed the venue of the president's acceptance speech tomorrow night. we'll explain what's going on as our coverage continues. there are a lot of warning lights and sounds vying for your attention. so we invented a warning you can feel. introducing the all-new cadillac xts. available with a patented safety alert seat. when there's danger you might not see, you're warned by a pulse in the seat. it's technology you won't find in a mercedes e-class. the all-new cadillac xts has arrived, and it's bringing the future forward. i i had pain in my abdomen...g. it just wouldn't go away. i was spotting, but i had already gone through menopause. these symptoms may be nothing... but they could be early warning signs of a gynecologic cancer, such as cervical, ovarian, or uterine cancer. feeling bloated for no reason.
